    My husband bought me a budget smart watch for our anniversary, and it does not work well with this phone. Does anyone have a favorite, fully functional smart watch that works well with the Pixel 2XL? Thank you.

    is there a price range to consider?

    any of the samsung's line of smart watches are really good. keep in mind though that it uses tizen os vs androids wear os. it should still work with all android devices. i have an lg urbane that i still use from time to time. it is a few years old and i think lg has a new line out that looks pretty promising. my friend loves her fitbit watch.

    Budget smart watches from brands no one has ever heard of are typically best to be avoided. They might work okay on their own but often have problems integrating with other devices (like your phone).

    I'm partial to Wear OS myself, particularly if you're primarily interested in basic fitness tracking and actionable notifications. There's a huge variety of different hardware available to meet your personal taste and price range:

    That said, Samsung's watches (as recommended by @ocnbrze ) might be able to provide a more polished experience since Samsung controls both the hardware and the software.

    Or on the more purposeful end of things, Fitbits do a much better job of tracking fitness data while also providing some information about incoming notifications.

    OT: Suddenly I'm interested in sleep cycles.
    Can Smartwatches do that yet?

    You can do it on Wear OS with a third-party app like Sleep As Android. I think Fitbits do it natively.
